Re: Most Underrated Deep Purple Studio Album


WDWTWA was my first DP LP. At the time I bought it (April '73) I didn't know about the DP soap opera. I just loved it.

Besides, nobody seems to think that "tension" was a bad thing when it came to the Beatles making the Abbey Road LP.

Both are good records.

I chose HOBL. To me, it is a real rocker and way better than PS. Had it been released first, PS would have been an afterthought.

Re: Most Underrated Deep Purple Studio Album


CTTB gets my vote. Many people who really love Purple (all decades) love the album, but it still gets its raps.
One criticism I hear about it is that it all sounds the same, which mystifies me. "Comin Home" sounds different from everything else, as does "Owed to G" and "This Time Around," as does, well, pretty much all of it.
On the other hand, I'm always a bit surprised by Bolin fans who pick it as their favorite Bolin work! I love it, but it does not show what Tommy was capable of to the extent that many other discs do.

Re: Most Underrated Deep Purple Studio Album


I am nothing if not predictable! That album is a mover and groover from start to finish, though, one that never fails to get me rolling.
Realistically, the Purple studio albums that get panned the most are the first three and S & M, right? And then maybe either HOBL or TBRO? And yet, every one has moments of greatness that many bands would kill for.

I am most guilty of under-rating the first three. I listen to them the least. I think I will work on that this week! I just got a portable CD player for the car as a gift; I have always maintained that I would lose track of the news if I had a CD player in the car, and it is becoming very, very [sign in to see URL] S

I'd probably say that The Battle Rages On is the most underrated album. It's a tough call though.

It is indeed very energic, much more than say Perfect Strangers. And very meliodic as well. There are lot's of great riffs in there, all band is performing very good.
Yet there's something that holds back tha standing ovations, hard to point at what it is.
Not to blame it all on Gillan, but I think this ain't one of his better album with DP. Gillan was better on House Of Blue Light, IMHO.

WDWTWA.
It's a great album. NO fillers.
Probably my fav studio album with Burn.

Re: Most Underrated Deep Purple Studio Album


I'm another one who disagrees with the majority view of Slaves and Masters. It has some superb tracks on it. FITB, BIB, CRD, KOD and WW are all excellent IMO. I know a lot of people don't like JLTs vocals but I prefer him to Gillan on HOBL and TBRO where his voice has a somewhat raspy quality to my ears.

Anyway I voted for S&M after some consideration. TBRO would have been my other choice.
